Attendance

We are excited to partner with you to strengthen our students in the area of academics, health, and individual and social growth. We value your partnership as the most effective means of fostering the change needed at the high school and middle school level in order to ensure student success beyond school. We have implemented changes at the middle school, high school, and the district level that, with your support, will lead us on the road to making the Baboquivari Unified School District an excelling community. One of the major changes is the board-approved attendance protocol intervention and enforcement plan, establishing a process to minimize and handle truancy cases.

What is truancy?

Truancy is when a student does not have a legal reason for arriving late, skipping a class, or missing a whole day or many days of school. Truancy also includes a child who willfully and repeatedly is absent from school or other learning programs intended to meet the child's educational needs.

The Baboquivari Unified School District has developed a prevention-intervention model to support youth and families regarding truancy with the goal to increase graduation rates. We have established attendance protocols for absences. This intervention model is an approach designed to help schools, parents, and youth identify the issues resulting in truancy and to create solutions and support systems to change behavior. Working together, the community intervention team and the family may address the truant behavior in a way that is supportive, inclusive, and consistent.

Overall Goals:

  • Build better rapport and show students they have support.
  • Improve student attendance, which will in turn improve academic achievement.
  • Develop/design effective intervention efforts for teachers to address student attendance and truancy.
  • Decrease the attendance errors from school operation, programs, students, and teachers.
  • Inform parents of student attendance issues on a daily basis and increase parent involvement and trust, specifically in the area of truancy intervention.

How can I help?

  • Educate your student(s) about the importance of being present and prepared every day.
  • Make sure your student is at school on time every day.
  • If your student is tardy to school, please walk him/her into the school and sign him/her in.
  • Call the front office to report all student absences immediately.
  • Volunteer at your student’s school to show your support for education and attendance initiatives.

Thank you in advance for your support as we work together toward 100 percent attendance this school year. We are here to assist you and your student.
